Awesome projector

By Anonymous

from Orange, California

Comments about Epson Home Cinema 5030UBE Wireless:

We have a dedicated media room in our house where we watch a lot of movies and sporting events. After living with a 65 inch tv for a couple of years, we longed for a bigger screen. However, the price for even a 70 or 75 inch tv which isn't that much bigger than what we had was just too much. A friend suggested a projector but we had always thought they were too expensive and the picture quality just wasn't as good as an HDTV. We decided to do some research and based on the reviews of the Epson 5030 ube we took the plunge. All I can say is WOW! The picture is unbelievably sharp, clear and awesome. We have it projecting on a 110 inch screen and finally have our giant screen "tv" at a very affordable price. Movie nights at our house have never been better. My advice is if you are like us and want the biggest screen you can afford, forget buying an HDTV and buy this projector! You will be amazed.

      Awesome picture! The black, great black detail. For the quietest performance it must be mounted right side up. So prepare to install a high shelf. It's not terribly loud inverted but much more noticeable. The iris is loud in any case. Still, there is not another PJ I would rather have that doesn't require me to pay another 1K at least.

      Comments about Epson Home Cinema 5030UBE Wireless:

      After you read all the reviews on this projector, I suspect you will come to the same cinclusion most reviewers did...that it's simply great. This is a must buy high quality projector. Where it simply excels is it sheer brightness. You can literally watch this with lights on and have total clarity. Don't even waste money on a new screen if you are replacing an old unit. You could literally play this on a white wall and it would be clear, crisp and sharp.

      The 5030UBe projector was purchased as a replacement upgrade for our home theater. It is an overwhelming piece of equipment right out of the box. It produces a bright picture with pure blacks. My family and friends were amazed! It sports 3D to boot. It is a true theater experience without wires which makes it a hit with my wife. A big recommendation for this Epson product from this family.

          Bare wall – no, Properly prepared and painted with the proper reflective material – absolutely. The web is full of information on how to do this and there are many home theatre contractors that can do it for you, if you are so inclined

          Answered on 1/22/2016 by Catman from Clearwater Florida
        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          You can project to any wall but your quality will vary depending on the
          surface and color. You want to maximize your contrast and brightness with
          using a proper screen or paint.
          I highly recommend either a projector screen for maximum brightness or
          paint on your screen with a special projector paint.
          I personally used a dual paint from www.gooscreen.com the base layer is for
          reflectiveness (it has tiny reflective metal bits in the paint) and a
          darker overcoat is for contrast. Once they cure the screen looks amazing.
          Then I used a black velvet tape for the boarders which do a lot for the
          light bleed and general look of the screen.
          You can paint right on to a dry wall with a smooth primer underneath with
          great results. One note is the goo screen paint will show flaws from the
          application process. I did it twice before I got the roller technique down
          to get the perfect customized 200 inch screen. I had enough paint for
          multiple attempts. You'll want to do two coats on each paint type.
          Gooscreen will have detailed instructions you can follow.
          Good luck.

          A:

          The optical audio out connection is on the wireless transmitter box only. The projector itself does not have an optical audio port. So if you are not using the wireless transmitter box, then you have to configure the set up accordingly. I'm currently not using the wireless transmitter box and have all of my components directly connected to the projector. I have an Apple TV connected directly to the projector, and the Apple TV has an optical audio out port that I use to connect to my sound system. But if you connect all of your components through the wireless transmitter box rather than directly to the projector, then you'll be able to use an optical audio cable that way.

          The projector is setup for wireless HDMI. This includes a wireless receiver
          in the projector itself and a separate wireless HDMI sender box. The small
          separate box (included) has 5 HDMI ports. You can plug your Blu-ray, ROKU,
          and laptop all into the wireless box and still have 2 more HDMI ports
          available for gaming systems, etc. The remote control for the projector
          allows you to select which wireless HDMI port to be used for sending to the
          projector. Works great and easy to use.

          There is a wireless sending unit that your other devices (Blu-Ray player, etc.) plug into via HDMI (3 HDMI Inputs). It then sends the signal to the projector. Unit needs to be within around 30ft. of projector and not in a cabinet to work well.

          A:

          The answer is the same for all three questions. An HDMI cable must be
          connected to the output of each device and routed to the transmitter
          (included with the projector). The transmitter has a total of 5 inputs to
          use. The signal is then sent to the projectors receiver. The communication
          between the transmitter and projector is "line of sight" and the transmitter
          must be located within the 180 degree semi-circle in front of the projector.
          Signal is degraded by exceeding that limit. Any other item, ceiling fans,
          and such, in the path between the two, will interfere with the "line of
          sight" signal.
          However, if set up correctly, you will enjoy a fantastic, wireless
          experience with the 5030UBE projector.

          A:

          Hi,
          I have this projector and can answer your questions.
          The simple answer to questions 1), 2), and 3) is to use an HDMI cable to connect a DVD/BLU-Ray player, ROKU (if it's a newer version with an HDMI port), and your hard disk (laptop or desktop computer) to the wireless transmitter box. The wireless transmitter box has 5 HDMI input ports, so you can plug up to 5 devices at a time. Or just have one HDMI cable that you switch between devices.
          There are also 2 HDMI input ports on the projector itself, so you could run the devices directly to the projector via HDMI cable. The projector itself also has more traditional video and component ports besides HDMI.
          I use Apple TV, which is like ROKU, and I have it directly plugged into the projector at all times. The projector acts just like a TV screen, so the onscreen menus, etc. show up on the projected image on the wall.
          The issue with using the wireless transmitter is how to get the sound to your speakers. There is an optical cable out port on the wireless transmitter box for running sound to a sound system of some kind, so you have to keep that in mind.
          Just to give you an idea, this is how I have mine all set up. I'm not using the wireless transmitter right now because of my current living room layout and have everything plugged directly to the projector, but I could have the same setup and connect directly to the wireless transmitter box instead of directly to the projector.
          Projector (or wireless transmitter box) <-- (image via HDMI cable) -- Apple TV --(sound via optical cable) --> Bluetooth transmitter -- (wireless transmission of sound) --> Bluetooth speaker
          And
          Projector (or wireless transmitter box) <-- (image via HDMI cable) -- Cable box --(sound via optical cable) --> Bluetooth transmitter -- (wireless transmission of sound) --> Bluetooth speaker
          I used to connect my computer by HDMI, but these days I often connect my iPhone to the Apple TV using Apple's AirPlay wireless function and watch content from my iPhone on the projector, which works great.
          There are many ways to get the image to the projector, but the trick is getting the sound to your speakers. If you already have a sound system, it'll be easy enough. Otherwise, I found the Bluetooth transmitter to Bluetooth speaker to work great.
          Sorry for the long reply. Hope it helps. This really is a great projector and the image quality is amazing. I'm constantly recommending my friends to ditch their TVs and switch to a projector.

          1) How can we see a DVD/Blu-ray from a /DVD/BLU-ray Player using Wireless

          Connect your DVD/Bluray device to the wireless HDMI transmitter included

          2)How can we watch NETFLIX/YOU TUBE and others from ROKU box on this

          You will have to connect your ROKU to the wireless HDMI transmitter
          3) How Can I watch movies from my Hard Disk?”
          There is a usb port on the wireless HDMI transmitter but it is limited to
          viewing pictures only, for watching movies you will need to have to a media
          player capable of accepting and playing movies from usb hdds.

          A:

          I would think the 133" Diagonal screen would be a good choice for you. With people viewing from 40' away it will be in your best image to fire up the Projector and see what size image is best for you. But if you're watching movies and usually 17'-20' away the 133" D sounds good. The Projector will be placed between 13' - 27' to achieve that. Most people would keep the Projector close to the ceiling.

          A:

          I have a 120" screen and really like it. The projector will easily support
          a larger screen. I have the projector mounted on a 10' ceiling about 12'
          away from the screen.
          The user guide states the following for a 16:9 aspect ratio:
          * 120" screen
          o 141"-300" in horizontal distance from screen to projector
          o Up to 85.8" of vertical offset from projector lens center to bottom of
          screen
          * 150" screen
          o 177"-376" in horizontal distance from screen to projector
          o Up to 107" of vertical offset from projector lens center to bottom of
          screen
          With the project closer to the screen, you get increased brightness (light
          projected). You lose some contrast darkness. This is what I prefer.

          Hi,
          This projector has a dial that allows you to change the size of the projected image without changing the distance between the projector and the wall. I have my projector set up approximately 14 feet from the wall and currently project an image that is 8 ft wide. Using the dial, I could make it significantly bigger or smaller if I wanted to do so. At 11.5 feet you should also be able to project a similarly large image. However, at 11.5 feet you probably won't want the image to be more than 6 or 7 feet wide anyways. If the image is too big, it becomes visually overwhelming when sitting at such a close distance and you can't take in the entire scene on the screen, especially if there is a lot of action taking place. So to sum it up, yes you could project a large image at a distance of 11.5 feet, but you'll likely find the best image for viewing pleasure will be smaller than the maximum projectable image that this projector is capable of producing.

          If you place the projector 11.5' away from the screen, the maximum image size would be 58" tall and 102" wide.

          I am pretty certain you can go 120”+ diagonally.
          I have had the projector in two areas. First, I tried having it setup in front of a wall unit with our home there setup. We were about 10' from the screen and were able to nearly fill our screen. The wall unit is 11’ wide, and the screen, as I recall is 98”. We then moved to a longer room and from about 12’ we can go outside of the screen dimensions. Sound in the new space was an issue without the home theater, but we went with a sound-bar through an optical hookup and the sound is amazing. Good luck.

          No, just plug-in a source to the transmitters HDMI, and you are good to go…it is a great feature if the source is not housed by the projector.
          I have Apple TV as the main hub connected to the transmitter. I just purchased a BluRay Player and drag a 50’ HDMI from my cablebox periodically.

          No you do not need any additional wireless accessories. However the
          wireless HDMI transmitter included with the projector requires line of
          sight with the projector to work and works flawlessly at upto 12 feet.

          Yes, the 5030UBE requires the wireless transmitter, that is included in the
          packaging. To use the wireless function the wireless TX/RX must be in front
          of the projector as the receiver on the projector is located on the front
          panel. I have had mild success with my wireless Transmitter being
          approximately 90 degrees from the front, but not behind the plane formed by
          the front of the projector. All HDMI cables, (5) from components plug
          directly into the transmitter. The viewing experience is phenomenal and we
          wouldn't trade our 5030UBE for any other model.
          Thanks a lot!!

          No, just be sure to have an unobstructed line of sight between the HDMI base unit and the projector. It can be a little finicky sometimes, but mostly works really well.

          Hello,
          Yes, the HDMI wireless transmitter needs to be in front of the projector. It can't be behind the projector. It can also be off to the side a little, as long as it's in front of the projector and there is a clear line of sight between the transmitter and the front of the projector. I have my transmitter about 10 feet in front and about 5 feet off to the side and it works fine.
          As an aside, I love this projector. It's very easy to operate and the picture is fantastic even in a bright room when set to the proper color mode.
          Hope this helps.

          I placed mine in front of the projector and it works great. Never a flicker
          in picture. Here is what the owner's manual states:
          . Place the WirelessHD transmitter so that the unit's lights face
          the front of the projector.
          . Make sure the WirelessHD transmitter is within 32 feet (10 m) of
          the projector and is located in the same room.
          . Ensure there is a clear path between the projector and the
          WirelessHD transmitter.
          . Avoid placing the WirelessHD transmitter in an area with many
          large or metal objects. Do not place the WirelessHD transmitter on a metal
          surface, as this may interfere with the signal.

          Yes. You must have a direct line of sight between the projector and the transmitter. So in my case the projector is about 6 feet behind the viewer and the transmitter sits discretely on a table at the front of the room.

          This would be a great option for your home theater room. The size of your screen would also depend on how far you plan on sitting from the screen. If you'll be sitting the full 17-18' back you could easily do a 120" diag which is a very popular screen size

          I have this projector set at a distance of 16 feet on a 120” screen (16:9) and it looks spectacular. The only thing I would caution you about is ambient light control. You will have much better results if you can eliminate most ambient light in the room. It will still look okay with some ambient light, but to really take advantage of the full quality of this projector, you need to control the room lighting.

          I have a similar sized room and installed the Epson 5030 using a ceiling mount. I could not be more pleased. It is a great value for the money and an excellent viewing experience. In determining your screen size you need to calculate the maximum size based on your throw distance. This projector is bright enough that you will want to maximize your screen size.
          Good luck and enjoy, it is a great unit
